World Cafe goes California coastal today with the band Cayucas, the project of Zach Yudin. Yudin performed under the name Oregon Bike Trails starting in 2011; in 2012, the project became a full-fledged band. At that point, the name changed to Cayucas, a nod to the central California beach town of Cayucos.

Last year, Cayucas collaborated with producer Richard Swift for its debut, titled Bigfoot. The album and the group is a far cry from Yudin's original looped electronic songs — and, under Swift's guidance, Cayucas has become a true California guitar band.
